#199 of 687 Armada brakes problem solve
Sep 06, 2005 (6:41 pm)
Nissan is replacing the rotors & front & rear pads at no cost to you. If your dealer is telling you they never heard of the problem they are lying. You may want to switch dealers if it is convenient. Every 2004 Armada & Titan, & most 2005s have this problem.
Here is what they replaced on mine;
2 40206-ZC01A ROTOR DISC
1 44060-ZC025 PAD KIT-DI
1 41060-ZC025 PAD KIT -
4 41005-7S000 BOLT
The front discs, calipers and pads were replaced. The rear rotors were turned, and only new pads installed. For all those people who are having a problem with their dealership (Not knowing about the Brake Jutter as THEY call it), there is a website that has all the bulletins on Armada (and other nissan) problems. I forgot who posted it here, but I believe it is www.nissanhelp.com.
It only took them 2 1/2 hours to replace them. And they should be free.

Does anyone know of someone who bought the '06? Nissan bought back my '04 and I really love the vehicle, but I am worried to repurchase if the '06 still have brake and window problems.
What do you think?

I bought an '06 Armada about three weeks ago and have not had any problems yet! I will make sure to post any problems that I do encounter.

I retained an experienced Lemon Law attorney. My case was settled before trial with Nissan buying back the Armada on very satisfactory terms.
You have nothing to lose by retaining counsel for these brake problems as the lawyer is paid by Nissan as part of the settlement.

I have the same problem w/ my tires (all 4), the dealer told me that they are worn at a dangerous levels at only 18k, but they refuse to replace them. How did you manage to do that?
#205 of 687 Just went in with my laundry list..
Sep 21, 2005 (5:00 pm)
Had the overhead console fixed for the 2nd time, power windows fixed, creaky vents fixed, couldn't duplicate the power seat intemittantly not working. The nice thing was, my brakes were worn out at 18K miles, so my dealer did the brake TSB for the warped rotors (even though they weren't) and did the whole brake job for free...

I have 3000 miles on our Armada and I have already taken it in for the second time. What state do you live in? What is the phone number of the lawer? Thanks for your help, Dave

We own a 2004 Armada, it's been to the dealer at least 8 times for brake judder. We have avg. 5 to 7000 miles between the problem returning. We had the fix done that you described and the problem returned sooner than before. It starts anytime you have either a panic stop or have to slow down from high speed driving quickly. I'm going to take it back again-my dealer is tired of seeing me. I'm beginning to think my only options are to buy aftermarket rotors or put an ad in the paper to sell it. For sale 2004 Nissan Armada, great shape, garage kept-just ask my dealer (Woodfield Nissan-Schaumburg Il.) -it's kept in his garage more than mine!
